Hello from Bulgaria (1 Viewer)

Hello, Birders. I'm Borislav from Bulgaria.

It's nice to finally join the forums.
My main interest here are binoculars and optics. I'm part of the Bulgarian Optical Collectors Society which as it turns out has a wide variety of collections. We also do annual meetings. We hope that next year we can make our meeting international.

The main brand in my collection are Swift instruments of which I have about 60. Of course other brands are also in it. I'd love to share information (as we have accumulated lots of knowledge here) on various binoculars and will be active mainly in the Binoculars sub-forum.

I do enjoy observing nature through my binoculars of course and there is nothing as a soaring bird in the sky or flying above a lake :)
